We have been here many times but last few times just weren't as satisfying. I had New Zealand rack of lamb ordered medium. Received the entrée rare to medium rare and the meat was chewy at best. The other 3 people in our party all had something different with no big complaints but no super satisfying comments either.

Four of us arrived with reservations for a Saturday night and were seated immediately. Our waitress was as knowledgeable about food options as any waitress we have had. One of our companions often orders duck and did so here. He loved it. I tried the kangaroo-first time for that. It was tender with a flavorful sauce. Like beef tenderloin in... More

Looked forward to our visit here tonite as a birthday celebration since we had great meals in past but instead we left hungry and disappointed. Arrived early ahead of our reservation time and checked in with the hostess and went to go have a drink at the bar. Finishing our drinks at our reservation time, we let hostess know we... More

Our initial impression of The Union House wasn't the greatest during our recent Saturday night visit. We had reservations, and were seated immediately, but it was 20 minutes before we were acknowledged again. However, once our waiter made his first stop at our table, the situation improved. He was very knowledgeable, and explained every item on the menu in detail.... More

I must say the service here is impeccable. Our waitress Donna was knowledgeable and gave gently guiding answers to our culinary questions.We enjoyed her immensely. The lobster was delicious, my husband's pheasant was the best he had ever had. While I have had short ribs many times, this time was not good. While it had a nice crust on the... More

We live in the area and have driven by this restaurant countless times. The unassuming exterior belies the superior quality of service and food. The focus on the food quality is paramount as cell phone use in the dining room is forbidden.

There were a group of 5 of us who went to dinner at The Union House. We enjoyed our food. For the caliber of restaurant that it is, we were surprised when we wanted to order a glass of wine that our choices were Chardonnay, Cabernet, Savignon, Pinot Gris etc. We asked about what specific wine it was but the...

The food is outstanding, changing daily, with soup and salad specials as well as game meat specials—our family favorite. Both the kangaroo and the New Zealand red deer are out of this world! Desserts also to die for. Martinis here are shaken at your table and poured into the glass ice cold—none of that horrible spilling all over the server's... More

Have eaten here a number of times but it was been a long time since my return - everything was MARVELOUS just as I remembered. Highly recommend sharing the appetizer sampler - the mushroom tart is out of this world. Bring your wallet as the meals are expensive, but certainly worth it! Our waitress was entertaining and very helpful -... More

It is our second time here, as we wanted to bring my mother in law from France to try this outstanding restaurant. And one more time, we were not disappointed. Service, Food, environment ... are amazing. We had such an great dinner. The only false note is maybe that they forget to do something special for the occasion: Birthday (I... More
